Secrets to Learning the Breaststroke

It is often much easier to learn the breaststroke kick in the inverted position because it is easier to see the foot and leg movements when you’re on your back. The breaststroke kick is a completely unique motion. You should avoid vigorous practice of the kick until your muscles have had time to adjust. Its efficiency depends on the flexibility of your knees and ankles.

SAT-ACT Test What is it ? Why should I take it?

Posted by http://www.athletesadvisor.com

The SAT-What is it?
The SAT is a college admissions test that measures critical reading, mathematical reasoning, and writing skills. The SAT lasts 3 hours and 45 minutes. In the U.S., the SAT is administered on 7 national test dates in October, November, December, January, March/April, May, and June.

The SAT-Why should I take it?
Colleges and universities use the SAT as one measure among others-high school curriculum, GPA, extra-curricular activities, personal essays, and teacher recommendations-of a student’s readiness to do college-level work. SAT scores are compared with the scores of other applicants and the accepted scores at that institution; scores can also be used as a basis for awarding scholarships and merit-based financial aid.

Reduce the Money In Your Personal Accounts

Posted by http://www.athletesadvisor.com

Students seeking need-based financial aid must be careful of how much money is in their savings and checking accounts. THIS IS VERY, VERY IMPORTANT!

Colleges and universities expect you (the student) to use virtually your entire savings to help pay for college. You should take action to reduce money held in your name; if you need to buy things (such as a laptop computer for next year), do it before you complete the FAFSA, CSS/PROFILE, and other financial aid documents. Do whatever you can to reduce the amount of money in your name and report the reduced amount on the FAFSA and CSS/PROFILE financial aid applications.
